Arteta receives double injury boost ahead of Sheffield Utd vs Arsenal clash


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is likely to have both Oleksandr Zinchenko and Thomas Partey available when they travel to Sheffield United in the Premier League next Monday.

Zinchenko and Partey have returned to training following injury lay-offs.

According to the Evening Standard, the duo were close to being involved against Newcastle United last weekend.

With the Gunners having a full week off before the Sheffield game, it will give the two players enough time to build up their fitness.

Partey has been out since October with a serious thigh problem while Zinchenko has been out of action since the start of February due to a calf injury

The Premier League trip to Sheffield United is followed by a home game against Brentford on March 9 and then the all-important Champions League clash with Porto three days later.
